Supposedly it was October of 2000 I think, but the only way to know for sure what rods you have is to look.

The PMR change over was finished by the end of October 2000. If the motor sticker says December 2000 the you have PMR just like Joe.:

Hate to hyjack.....my build date is 9/00. Does that mean I make the cutoff. I am just curious, I have not had the chance get in there and inspect.
thanks,
Steven
